Blacker Yarns  We produce a range of beautiful breed specific yarns made exclusively from British sheep, all spun and dyed under one roof in Cornwall.

Natural colours of our soft, velvety Shetland wool. It has beautiful stitch definition for cosy cables πŸ‘Œ

Grey misty days and cosy grey sweaters: the perfect combination.

How cute are these little Soay lambs?
They are grazing in the abandoned village on the island of Hirta, part of the St Kilda archipelago far off the western coast of Scotland. These rare sheep, along with Borerays from a neighbouring island, are the inspiration for our St Kilda Laceweight yarn.

Thanks to the St Kilda Club for use of this photograph.

Did you know, the hardy Boreray Sheep is the only remaining descendant of the Scottish Tan Face breed, which is now extinct?

We use Boreray fibre in our St Kilda Laceweight yarn, as well as a pure Boreray aran, shown here.

Hooray, Tamar is back in stock! We're so pleased to be offering a full colour palette of this gorgeous lustre yarn once again.
Huge thanks to everyone who visited our stand to squish Tamar at Yarnporium over the weekend, and to Allison and Rachel from @yarninthecity for such a well organised and wonderful event.

Here we are at Yarnporium in Central Hall Westminster!
It's Katie's last show with us and Kamila's first. We're very excited to meet you, talk wool and knitting, and hear about your plans and projects. We have Tamar, Tor and lots more yarn goodness with us!

We are in love with the Mokey Cardigan, a new design by Claire Walls @flossiknits in Blacker Swan DK.
What a cosy, comfortable wardrobe staple that will go with everything and suit everybody! Congratulations Claire on publishing this gorgeous design.

We can't believe it - some shades from this year's batch of Mohair Blends have started to sell out already. Thank you so much! Make sure you catch your favourite before it's gone...

We are starting to get very excited about Yarnporium next weekend! Will you be coming to visit us in London?

With this cold snap in the air, all we can think about is cosy hand-knitted socks.
This is our free pattern for the Morwenstowe Socks by Sonja Bargielowska. They have a cute cable detail and a princess sole, and are designed for our Tamar 4-ply.
